WASHINGTON - A group of children from New Jersey were special guests at the White House Tuesday.

First lady Michelle Obama invited several Sandy-impacted students from Union Beach Memorial School and Long Beach Island Grade School to the White House kitchen to teach them about healthy eating.

The Union Beach children were displaced by Sandy and currently attend school in other buildings while their school is repaired.

All of the Long Beach Island students have been attending their sister school, the Ethel A. Jacobsen Elementary School.
